Denim, stripes and leopard-print...

You know how much I love striped tops and this one is a recent addition to my wardrobe from good old H&M. I love the three-quarter length sleeves and paired with my favourite denim dress, it was the perfect outfit for a lazy weekend spent watching films and eating a roast beef dinner...At weekends, if I get dressed at all, I like to be in something that is super comfy, there's nothing worse than being too dressed up! 

Dress: NW3 by Hobbs, top: H&M, belt: New Look, shoes: French Sole flat shoes

Stripes are perfect for pattern mixing and a spot of leopard-print jazzed up this outfit no end! Paired with my 'go to' hairstyle and some burgundy nail varnish, it made me feel like I had made some effort at least...



I have been obsessed with leopard print recently and these beautiful shoes are from French Sole, a brand I have been desperate to try for years.  People have raved about the fit but I thought they were just a glorified pair of ballet pumps, and not worth spending the money on. How wrong I was! They fit perfectly and unlike a lot of ballet pumps, they don't gape at the sides. I survived a whole weekend traipsing around London in them, no mean feat, I think you will agree!


What do you wear at the weekend? Have you ever tried French Sole shoes?

As I'm sure you can imagine, this is probably one of my favourite outfits of yours ever! Stripes and leopard print are a combination I rely on far too often ! Still really jealous of that pinafore dress as well!

Ooh I love the leopard print with the stripes! At the weekend I wear running gear, then come home, have a shower and slip exhaustedly into trackie bottoms and a hoodie - glam or what?!

sigh, the pumps are way to narrow for my wide feet :( Love the mix of stripes and leopard (my fave print) x

I haven't tried them but I might well do! I'm sick of cheap ballet pumps so it's definitely worth investing in some well-made ones.

I love your denim dress! I'm on the lookout for a new one as my old topshop one, which is about 7 years old, is starting to give at the seams.

I really want a denim dress, but have never known how to wear/style one before, this certainly has given me some inspiration. Those pumps are perfection xxx
